    Thanks for the offer but some of us of got to stay on the front line and keep up the fight...and besides I cant see the forest for the trees. Then again maybe I should take time out...
    Soon my friend i will arrive to focus on my Wim Hof

    This is what infuriates me. We sign Korbin Sims and before the end of the first year he’s been told to look elsewhere.

    Now leaving aside whether those rumoured to have been told to move on should or shouldn’t, I assume this is to free up cap space. That’s ok if you’re an attractive destination which sadly we’re not. Or maybe Korbin has told them the joint stinks. That would make most sense.

    The thing that infuriates me is I don’t see any strategy around our roster management. Too many short term fixes with no long-term strategy.

    It just makes my head hurt.

    Any review by Gould instigated by the coach is highly unlikely to be an objective and independent review.

    I fear that like the wrestling of the 1970s the result has been predetermined before the review is undertaken.

    Very much hope I am wrong and that Gould delivers an impartial assessment.

    If so, cannot see McGregor surviving.

    As for paying him out of his new contract, I predict we the fans could raise the $$$ via crowd funding within 72 hours.

    So, if i'm not mistaken:

    Field, Rava, K. Sims, Maranta, Nicholls, Aitken and Dufty all told to look around for other clubs. Timm not required, young Masters and Robson already signed elsewhere. Widdop going to ESL and Latimore retiring. Have I forgotten anyone!
    Thats up to 12 possible players we need to replace for next year.

    However, it appears, at this stage, one name is missing from the list, Allgood!

    In any case, names thrown around to be signed include, Reynolds, Dugan and JMoz all on inflated contracts at their current club. Bargain shopping? 3 for the price of 1, with the current club chipping in a portion of their salary.
    Tony Gigot , trez tragique!

    Seems to me we are either going all in on our juniors, or will journeymen soon start lining up at our doorstep?
    How the mighty have fallen!

    Precisely SF,

    It reeks of a board grappling for time with the mindset influencing the end result.

    Mario Milano and Killer Karl Kox had nothing on these guys.

    Watch the Storm pick him up and turn him into a star.

    How sad is our once great club. A few comments over the past month which show the ineptness of our CEO and Board -

    Firstly - I think this year is a pass mark.
    Then a couple weeks later - There will be a football department review but not the head coach role.
    Then last week - The head coach role will now be part of the end of season review.
    This week - Review announced and not even started yet but Mary is safe and not part of the review.

    If Gus was able to do a full review and not just a partial one. He could definitely clean the place out but he does not have full control. Hope I'm wrong but I doubt it

    Prefer Skull Murphy and Brut Bernard. Imagine those two in the front row for the Dragons.

    How the club can let Maranta go says everything about our club.
    ...............ah, let me change that around.
    How the club could buy a player like Maranta is beyond me.
